Biennial Women Veterans Survey

Every two years, the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs conducts a Minnesota Women Veteran Survey. The 2015 biennial survey was open until August 15. The purpose of the survey is to document and track status, experiences, and demographics of Minnesota women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as to connect women Veterans to services available through MDVA and other departments and organizations. Results of the 2015 survey will be available in the near future.
